Party Like a Rock Star

Just wanted to pop in and share a new project and a few things with you. We are still in Birthday mode around here. We just finished my daughter's spa/ sleepover party this past weekend and yes that was the third big party since Dec 2nd. I am officially partied and decorated out. Then my brother has to go and have a birthday today and my husband on Saturday:)  Will it ever end? I am ready to relax and just craft and color for fun but only after I finish Riley's new "big girl" room make over. 
You still have until Friday to enter our Favorite Color Combo Challenge at CMC Copic Challenge Group so I really hope you will join us.  We also have a Facebook Group that we would love for you to join so please come check it out here https://www.facebook.com/groups/CMCCLASSROOM/.
I am trying to get better about being more active with FB so I added a link to my page on my side bar and would love it if you would "Like" my page and help new people who love to craft find my blog too.
As I mentioned my brother just had a birthday(Happy Birthday Ty) and I have had this image from Kenny K called Groove Dude since last year and just didn't have time to make his card.  So I stepped it up a notch and made another shadow box.  My brother plays the bass  I can't tell you how much this image reminds me of him.

Bloom and Grow

Hello!! It has been a doozie of a week here with me and my littlest being sick all week long.  One thing would go away and then some other symptom would pop up.  I rarely get sick, honestly maybe once a year but I think it maybe longer. Lets face it moms can't get sick or things fall apart.
 The kids are watching a movie as I type this and I can't wait for them to go to bed to catch up on some shows on the DVR and maybe sneak a bowl of ice cream.  I absolutely love to watch Hart of Dixie. I guess it is one of those guilty pleasure shows.  I love the south cute small town idea.  That is where I would like to move for sure, not good for the hubby and Architecture though.  My other favorites to watch Once Upon a Time (love their take on fairy tales) this is a must watch in my book,  Castle is another great one and Revenge.  So what are your favorite TV shows or guilty pleasures these days?
There is a new challenege up at the CMC Copic Challenge Group and it is a fun one. 
Favorite Color Combos
color ANY image ANY way you like
but WE WANT TO SEE YOU USING YOUR FAVORITE COLOR COMBOS and tell us why they are your fave if you'd like too!
We want to see you use YOUR COPICS, ProMarkers, other alcohol markers or Colored Pencils!!
One lucky winner (at random) will win a
free CMC Online Class of their choice from any of Marti Will's classes (Prisma Pencil classes, Cricut or Mixed Media classes...see all of her classes in Class tab at top of site)

 My favorite color combos happen to be pinks, blue greens with a touch of green.   I think they are so fresh and definitely girly.  I also used my favorite hair color combo and my all time favorite stamps Saturated Canary this one is Princess Rose Red.  I have some more birthdays coming up, my middle daughter Riley turns seven Monday so I decided this might be a nice gift for her to keep rather than a card. She is after all my biggest fan. This cute box is from 7 Gypsies and I found them at Michaels and Archivers. ( I have another version to show you soon).

Fairy Kisses

It is a new year and I am ready to get back to crafting. The last half of the year was full of happiness, sadness and craziness always that didn't leave me with much time to craft and to be honest a loss of creativity.  With a trip to Archivers in Austin today with my crafty friend Minette **waving hi:)** and a ton of patterned paper I am ready to get back into it.  Now I just have to stay focused on one project at a time, KWIM?
There is a new challenge at the Color Me Creative Copic Challenge Group that is sure to take away those winter blahs.  This time we want to see you color in Soft Pastels. The winners of the Holiday bash are also up so be sure to see if you are a winner.
 We have a wonderful sponsor this time Katie Cotton from Paper Makeup Stamps.   Paper Makeup stamps were actually the first stamps I purchased after finding out there were more out there than SU.  I have a particular fondness for fairies:) this is Isabella and you can find her HERE.
 The paper is Nature Garden by Jodie Lee designs and the embellishments are from The Paper Studio.  I used my Cameo to cut out the flower vine.  I am always amazed by the detail cuts it makes.  I really need to take the time to learn everything it does because I love it.  I added some Crystal Stickles to the vine and her wings.

We have some new team members on the CMC team so please stop by and see their beautiful creations they are fabulous.

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year!! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and is ready to start the New Year.  The last couple of months have been so busy and crazy to say the the least.  We just had my sons Harry Potter themed party on the 30th.  A little advice...never have a big party at your house 5 days after Christmas,LOL.  It was crazy but amazing and I can't wait to share the pictures of it and the Beauty and the Beast party that was a few weeks ago as well.
I just wanted to remind everyone that you have a few more days to join in on the amazing challenges and giveaways at the CMC Holiday Bash.
I wanted to share one of my favorite cards that I made in 2012.  I love Saturated Canary as you may know and this crazy girl reminds me of the way I have felt the past month with all of the parties I have been working on:)

I am excited for things to settle down now and get back to crafting and blogging a lot more in 2013.  Thank you all for sticking with me and for all of the inspiration that everyone gives in return.
